Thanks for your reaction. Unfortunately it has not helped me for I have no idea how to set the parameter \Umathquad\textstyle. Just loading the fonts, as I believed you suggest in your mail, does not change anything: the compilation with a 2017 mkiv still stops at “ 7~$\xrightarrow[none]$~6 progression ”.
However, when I use the older font calls,
it compiles correctly files containing arrows ( $\xrightarrow[none]$ ) with the pre-2017 mkiv's . With my 2017 mkiv it still compiles correctly albeit not with the specified font but with latinmodern-math.otf. (Btw, I found the same behaviour for other fonts, such as: dejavu, times, palatino, bonum, lucidanova, lucida, garamond, libertine, gentium, xits, courier, and cambria.)
For me the simplest solution would be to keep working with pre-2017 standalones for documents that contain these arrows (for musical tone- or chord-progressions )
But it intrigues me why some process that worked perfectly in many generations of mkiv has suddenly stopped working in the recent mkiv's.
